Many people with dementia will eventually reach a point where they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves – this is known as lacking ‘mental capacity’. When this happens, someone else – often a carer or family member – will need to make decisions on their behalf.
A Lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that gives another adult the legal authority to make certain decisions for you, if you become unable to make them yourself. The person who is given this authority is known as an ‘attorney’. They can manage your finances, or make decisions relating to your health and welfare.
